Holly Wilson is a sculptor living in Mustang, Okla., who’s tired of dealing with gallery dudes who attempt to dismiss her expertise and undervalue her work just because she’s a woman. So Wilson crafted a secret weapon that she could keep in her pocket to give her strength when negotiating with sexist men: a 1½-inch-long cast bronze penis. Now, Wilson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to put her prototype penis into production and help other women “bring your dick to the table,” too. Her slogan: “If all that separates us is a dick, then here is mine. Now let's get down to business.”
Women like Holly Wilson need to realize that men don't "dismiss their expertise" or "undervalue her work" because they don't have a penis. It's actually because the male brain, on average, is about 8% - 13% larger than the female brain, and we're simply worried you're not capable of making the correct decision. Therefore, Holly should be bringing a miniature bronze brain to the table. Zing!
Here are a few pic of the penis sculptures. I'm not sure if photos of bronze miniature penises are considered NSFW, but if they are, be warned:
I hate to break it to Holly, but I don't think putting a 1 and 1/2 inch penis on a table is going to win you any respect or make a guy take you seriously. As Spencer pointed out in an email, "It will only make guys on the football team laugh and point at you." Since that's how businessmen typically treat women who have an opinion – which is something I don't condone – it will only make the problem worse.
Also, isn't there a double standard here? If some man who works at Pottery Barn or Pier One designed a miniature bronze vagina in an effort to win respect from women, he'd be ostracized. Some woman comes up with an idea to make miniature small penises and she raises $10,000 on Kickstarter. Other than the lack of respect thing and having to deal with asshole male chauvinist, it must be nice to be a woman.
